The North American taxa have already been split to form Northern Shrike (IOC)/Northern Grey Shrike (HBW) L.borealis which includes invictus and borealis from N.America and mollis, funereus, sibiricus and bianchii from Asia.

And of course IOC differs from HBW and Howard & Moore in recognising Great Grey Shrike L.exhubitor which includes exhubitor and homeyeri. HBW treats Southern Grey Shrike L.meridionalis (Iberia) as a monotypic species.
